Discussion on: Rejected by Facebook

A legitimate cause of rejection reason can be that you wrote in your resume you are a remote worker, and remote was in bold.
Some companies prefer candidates that work in office.
I was rejected for a position on Atlassian for that reason, as they didn't offer a remote position, instead I was asked to move to Australia.
I was sad for that, because the position offered was really interesting, but I really can't move.

I agree, but I don't believe that had anything to do with this scenario. I didn't spell it out in the article, but before I sent them the link to my resume site, I had one of those standard "intro calls" with the FB recruiter. She told me, in very broad terms, about the roles they were looking to fill, which mapped well to my skillset (which is why they'd reached out). In that same call, I was very explicit in asking if this was a 100%-remote opportunity. And she confirmed that it was.
